This place has everything from great meals, great service, great portions, great views. This is my favorite restaurant in Key West. It is a bit pricey but you definitely have options (smaller portions can be ordered) and it is worth the price. You get a...lot of food and one of the best things about it is their bread and butter that comes with the meals. It is excellent! Must visit when there. I have also had a lot of their dishes and there is not one thing that is not greatMore

We never expected to eat and have such a nice experience her. Food was amazing, bread, the pasta, the desserts, etc. Steve our waiter was the BEST. Must come back.

So much to say about this place. First the menu is fantastic. Everything on their menu is worth trying. Staff very friendly and attentive. We love sitting at the bar and the bar area here is so relaxing. Great view of the harbor. Make it...a bucket list restaurant when in Key West...you'll be glad you did.More

Fantastic food and wine-quiet, and a great escape from the racket outside. Our family truly enjoyed it.

We were there Saturday June 24th! My husband had Osso Buco and it was delicious and I had Clams and linguini with white sauce and it was outstanding. My husband had key lime pie and he said it was delicious. Definitely a place to go...and beautiful inside!More

Had a tremendous experience today. My server Jarred was absolutely perfect about the execution of the menu. The dining experience was added by his knowledge of cocktails and wine. Highly recommend!

I had trouble finding a restaurant in Key West that could accommodate our large work group. We worked with Michaela to set up a meal for 30 people, and the food, atmosphere, and service were all fantastic. Everyone loved the spot, and we had a...great time! I would highly recommend this spot for anyone who is looking for great seafood and a friendly but upscale dinning experience in Key West!More

Been to Bel Mare three times this past year. Loved it every time. Appreciate that half portions of pasta are available since the entrees can be large. Beautiful view of harbor and handcrafted specialty cocktails. Great service as well. Don’t forget to finish off your...meal with gelato.More

Service and food was 5 star. We ate the beef crudo appetizer and it was heavenly. Fish of black snapper was just perfect. My husband had the lobster in a lovely broth with amazing subtle spice accents and generous amount of lobster . Love the...divey places Key West has to offer but eating here with the ambience of the boats in the marina above the crowd was a wonderful and special experience. I look forward to visiting on next trip! Bought back memories of eating in a seaside restaurant in Italy! Out waitress was excellent from Montenegro. Thank you to the chef!More

Went here to celebrate our anniversary and the place is beautiful and service was wonderful. The negative is suggesting adding scallops to the mushroom risotto and not disclosing how much it would be WOW not ok.

Drinks and appetizer of melon and assorted fruits were fine. The veal marsala was half the thickness a medallion should be. My lobster scampi had mostly claw meat and was served with egg noodles. Not what I had hoped.

Our flight was cancelled so I had to make a reservation the day of our dinner which always makes me skeptical when there are openings. But food was fantastic. I have gluten and shellfish issues so they adjusted the pasta and I had Veal Chop....The chop was big and delicious served with tasty polenta. My husband has a pasta appetizer and Tile fish piccata. He absolutely loved it. We have eaten in a lot of great restaurants in the US and Europe and were surprised to add this to our top list! Only drawback might be that if there is outdoor seating I didn’t see any - but a nice view of the marina if you are along a window.More

We visited on St Patrick’s day evening and while most of Key West was awash with revellers, Bel Mare was relaxed, ambient and the food was fabulous. (We even took home a doggy bag!) Jayde our server was attentive, knowledgeable and ensured we had a...meal to remember. - Thank you! We would definitely recommend this place.More

We didn't notice a dress code. There was a wide viriety of dress but it is one of the nicer more upscale restaurants in that area.
